    This release is full of absolutely amazing, gorgeous, hallucinatory dub. "The Legendary Skatalites In Dub" is one of the greatest dub albums of all time, and a true one-of-a-kind aural experience. These 1975 recordings feature King Tubby working with the re-formed Skatalites, and a number of others (Ras Michael, and Earl "Chinna" Smith, among them), to create some mysterious, beautiful sounds. The Skatalites had just reunited in 1975 and recorded the album "The Legendary Skatalites," to which this album is a dub counterpart. The music here is much slower, funkier and way further out than traditional Skatalites, with ska stylings replaced by a deep psychedelic-roots mood and pulsing Niyabinghi rhythms. Tubby does some spectacular work here, creating unearthly dub soundscapes so mesmerizing and unique that it's clear this project was a labor of pure love. Just imagine inspired Skatalites brass lines drifting in ghostly sheets of reverb over a landscape of Ras Michael's slow-grooving Niyabinghi drumming (there are eight Niyabinghi drummers on this disc) and Lloyd Brevett's impossibly deep ACOUSTIC bass. As if it couldn't get any better than that, the lion's share of rhythms come drenched in the swampy magic that only Lee Perry's Black Ark studios could provide. Lloyd Brevett (also the producer of this set) and Tommy McCook (leader, sax) actually built their melodies around improvised Niyabinghi drum sessions while jamming in the yard of Brevett's home. Tubby keeps this percussion nearly ever-present, and its trancelike power and richness ensure that even the most spare sections sound luscious and full. It is difficult for me to describe the mystic vibe which was created here...it's like some beautiful lucid dream; perfect for late, late night listening. There are also a couple of afro-funk, 70s style uptempo killers, which are perfect for giving context and perspective to the other tracks. Long story short, nearly every track here is a DUB MASTERPIECE which gets better and better with each consecutive listen.

    "The Legendary Skatalites In Dub" is easily within my top-five favorite dub recordings, right up with Augustus Pablo's "King Tubby's Meets Rockers Uptown" and Tubby's "Freedom Sounds In Dub." The sound quality is flawless, as is the cd booklet essay, which includes full personnel. Running time is 56:30.

    I should mention that an earlier incarnation of this disc, made before more tracks were discovered, contains a handful of *slightly* different mixes of tunes here, but Motion Records did not feel they were different enough to pack them onto this disc. That disc is called "Heroes Of Reggae In Dub," and contains nine tracks, but "The Legendary Skatalites In Dub" is considered the definitive release, and is definitely the one to get. The earlier release also had many tracks which were misnamed, and those errors have been corrected here. For people who become huge fans of "Legendary Skatalites In Dub," such as myself, it may be worth it to check out "Heroes Of Reggae In Dub" for the those few tracks with slightly different mixes. If you want to hear the original un-dubbed tracks (a couple of which are included here), check out Lloyd Brevett & The Skatalites' fantastic "African Roots," which has also gone by the LP title "The Legendary Skatalites." Why do I know all of this? Because I really, truly can't get enough of these sessions. What would REALLY be amazing would be for Motion Records to put out a two-disc set with all of the original instrumental LP tracks, and all of the dub mixes as well.

    In any case, thank you, Motion Records, for this amazing release.

    Le netlabel bordelais French Dub Released (FDR pour les intimes) nous a réservé un beau cadeau en ce début d'été : le maxi Tribute To King Tubby de Manutension en téléchargement libre sur le site du label !

    Pour situer Manutension à ceux qui ne le connaissent pas encore, voici une rapide bio. Membre fondateur du groupe pionnier de la scène dub française Improvisators Dub dont il est le guitariste live et accessoirement clavier, percussionniste en studio et ce depuis 14 ans. Il opère également en solo sur des sound systems (et avec son propre sound) depuis une dizaine d'année, a sorti plusieurs productions en maxis 45t, un album complet en 2002 : Dub Attack The Tech Vol.1 – Strictly For Sound System Dub et est aussi présent sur de prestigieuses compilations dub (Dub Excursion volumes 1 & 2, French Dub System 2, Dub Odyssey...).
    Après avoir rendu hommage à Prince Far-I sur Dub Attack The Tech Vol.1, Manutension rend aujourd'hui hommage au King Tubby avec un titre se qui se décline en 4 parties : la première pourrait être qualifiée de steppa mix, la 2nde dub mix, la 3ème deep dub mix et la 4ème deep dub & sax mix. On retrouve les sonorités digitales UK style chères à Manutension, proches également de celles du dernier album d'Improvisators Dub Rumble avec une approche de mix traditionnelle (analogique) très appréciable.

    Idéal pour les playlists de vos longues soirées d'été, ce maxi devrait ravir plus d'un amateur de steppa, de dub mixes et de King Tubby. À télécharger, écouter et partager, thanks FDR.

    Tracklist :
    01. Tribute to King Tubby Part.1 04:20
    02. Tribute to King Tubby Part.2 04:20
    03. Tribute to King Tubby Part.3 04:18

    Six mois après la sortie du premier opus baptisé Melody Roots sur ODGProd, le barcelonais Dani Ites est de retour avec une nouvelle mouture nommée Spiral. Toujours garnie de la même énergie cette release a été enregistrée et mixée dans le courant de l'année 2010. Producteur insatiable, Dani nous propose  une fois de plus un flash-back habile au coeur des  années "vintages". On remarquera un travail différent comparé au traitement très "digital" de la partie rythmique sur Melody Roots, un accent beaucoup plus instrumental habille Spiral accompagnant divinement bien chaque mélodie céleste jouées au mélodica.

    Six months after the release of the  first album called Melody Roots on ODGProd,  the Barcelona's Dani Ites is back with a new album called Spiral. Always with the same energy this release was recorded and mixed in the course of 2010.  The unflagging producer Dani is proposing once again a clever flashback into the 70's. We noted a different job compared to treatment very "digital" part of the rhythm on Melody Roots, a lot more instrumental emphasis dresses Spiral accompanying each divinely celestial melody played on the melodica.

    01-DEEP PART1

    05-LOVE JAH
